6:30pm
questions about health care and the economy. what does that say about president obama's chances of stopping that momentum that is building for romney? >> i think it's a couple of things. one, the president has enjoyed the edge in likability. all along and i think he continued that edge last night. whatever the fra discuss between the two of them romney seems more the bully if you will than obama. they both were in each other's face but romney more so. that's likability. but the other side is look, the president has to tell us not only what he's done, where he's taking us. he's our shepherd, our guide. and both he and romney have put ideas out there, romney's got a plan, fla the president says is flawed but the president only talks about what he has done and he hasn't talked enough about what he needs to do. where he's going to take us. that is why people said we're not sure where he is when it comes to the economy. >> well, aside from the fact they seemed like they were in each other's personal space the
6:31pm
debate is going to be remembered by the quote the binder full of women and the confrontation over libya. the next debate is on foreign policy. whose expertise does that play to and really, do americans care so much about libya when they worry about jobs. >> i think two strands here. it will be very interesting, each of them handles both of these. one has to do with jobs, yes, to the extent we can affect trade, that we can stop other countries from abusing us when it comes to subsidizing products, those kind of issues, china, other countries, that il with be important. trade gets the jobs. the other foreign policy angle has to do with terrorism and national security. again we saw a little bit of that when it comes to libya. of course it's more than libya. is the country safer today than it was four years ago. just the counterpart to is this country better off economically.
6:32pm
i think the president will probably be able to make the claim that the sun is safer today and mitt romney is going to work hard on the trade angle so. there is going to be an opportunity for both to get in each other's face again when it comes to foreign policy. this third debate because of the first two will be by far the most important not only because of something after tie-breaker but it will be just days before the election. >> true. we'll bring it to you. thank you, larry. >> students and officials at san francisco city college are crossing fingers. the future of the school could be determined by the election. san francisco city is trying to keep its doors open after a college board threatened to strip the financially troubled school of accreditation. the school has until march to turn things around. prop a on the ballot would raise $14 million for the school through a parcel tax. the school could lose $11 million in funding if the prop 30 tax measure fails to pass. >> when you have to start making cuts at a community college
6:33pm
inevitably it means it affects people. it affects facilities, affects classes. everybody will feel it. >> critics of prop a say the college got itself into troubles with financial mismanagement. the taxpayers shouldn't be asked to bail it out. >> now to a bay area follow-up. they can stay but not too much longer. disabled veterans living on boats have been told that they can stay until the end of november. the marina is not safe to live in and it's too costly to repair. the veterans have been there five years in fort baker. travis air force base rents the arena from the park service. the vets were told they had until the end of september to move out. attorneys for the men, though, say after our story aired, the air force extended the men's stay. >> we're a good presence. we fought for the country and we're older but we don't bother anybody.
